Hi guys, I’m trying to get the topic count and reply count for the current logged in user, so I would like to check
/session/current.json to get both.
topic_count returns what I’d expect, however
reply_count is very different from
/u/[username]/summary.json. At first I thought
reply_count might just exclude the posts you make when starting a new topic, however in my case, the two counts are are 173 and 410 respectively—and the
topic_count is 78. So if that was the case the
reply_count should have been 332.
Could anyone explain the difference between these two metrics and which I should be using to get the actual reply count (which I define as total posts minus topics started)?
